My absence from this location has to do with lots of writing. I'm working on the revision to the vast, oceanic tome Real World Adobe GoLive for version 6 of the program, which Adobe shipped last week. We hope to be done in just a few weeks, and I've conservatively written over 50,000 words in the last eight weeks for the book, mostly in the last five. I'm nearing the end, as is my co-author, and then we enter Layout Hell, as we are producing the book as well.
Meanwhile, I'm filing article after article for the Seattle Times, NY Times (briefs), Smart HomeOwner, SBS Electronic Design, Macworld, O'Reilly Networks, and so on. Many words flow forth.
